Polar Bear Lapbook
Here is the lapbook we did:
On the cover I cut out a polar bear and the letters to spell Polar Bear on my cricut and he glued them on. On the inside, I have a mini book that we filled out together about Polar Bears, a map of where they live, another mini book that he glued sentences into about what Polar Bears eat, and then a little picture that points out parts of a polar bear and has their feet prints. On the back cover I have a polar bear maze in a cover sheet so he can use a dry erase on it, and the back side is a picture he colored (sort-of) of a polar bear and her cubs. In the ziploc bags I have a polar bear puzzle, and polar bear word cards for making compound words, he can only read some of the words, so I read them to him and we had fun making nonsense words, and real words. Then glued to the back is another picture I printed of a polar bear and where he wrote his name for the FIRST time. He asked me to help him out of the blue (he typically has no interest in writing at all)...so I helped him with the C, he wrote the o and L, and I helped with the e...not bad for his first time! We also printed out a polar bear card from National Geographic Kids (they had lots of stuff on their site, I linked it in the polar bear post before this one).
**They have a lot of stuff at homeschool share, but you can google Polar Bears and find a ton of stuff! Sorry this is an old post that I have just updated and I don't have all the links to the items I posted.
I found some more great Polar Bear video links:
San Diego Zoo
They even have a live polar cam of their polar bear exhibit...but it's a little slow, and didn't hold my 3yo's attention very well.
and some more videos
Next week is Johnny Appleseed!
